It’s Memorial Day weekend, and that means an extra day off here in the U.S. of America. It also means parades. But sadly, sequester cuts mean you likely won’t be getting the obligatory flyover this year. Thankfully, game companies like Aspyr and Feral Interactive are giving the economy a boost by offering great OS X game sales.
I’m not one to play much poker, if any. If I’m going to sit around a table with a bunch of dudes and play anything, it’s going to be Risk. Or maybe Star Frontiers. That would change, however, if the dudes were Claptrap from Borderlands, Brock Samson from The Venture Bros., Sam from Sam & Max, and (are you kidding me?!) Ash from Army of Darkness. These are your opponents in Poker Night 2.
Nastume has developed and published some popular family-oriented games for consoles and handheld devices (think Harvest Moon, Rune Factory and Reel Fishing), but at E3 2013 in Los Angeles next month, they’ll be bringing their iOS lineup to the forefront. Amongst the numerous titles on display will be two entries in the Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove series, a new Reel Fishing game, and a new IP called Ninja Climb.
If you’re looking for a good scare that extends beyond the sofa on a Saturday night, you might want to take a look at Haunting Melissa, a new horror story app from Hooked Digital Media. Conceived, directed and produced by Neal Edelstein—the producer behind The Ring—Haunting Melissa uses push notifications in an unpredictable manner to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
Your iPhone 5 has been a boat adrift long enough. Time to bring it to port, and the iLuv Aud 5 Lightning speaker dock is now open. Originally unveiled at CES 2013 in January, the Aud 5 is iLuv’s first audio dock designed specifically for Apple’s Lightning iDevices.
Dropbox shared folders let two users (i.e., two accounts) share a folder of files. But sometimes Dropbox Sharing is not what you want, e.g., independent work and home accounts. The Joy of Macs’ new Dropbox Encore enables a second instance of Dropbox to run in a single Mac OS X user account. Each instance of DropBox must have a unique Dropbox account and a separate local Dropbox folder.
With the Creative Cloud news from Adobe and the brouhaha that followed, we completely forgot to let you know about their update to Adobe Connect Mobile this week. Available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch (and now optimized for iPad mini and iPhone 5), Adobe Connect Mobile lets users host, join, collaborate and share in Adobe Connect Meetings.
With a name like the Mi-T Grip, you expect this dash mount from Bracketron to be either A.) sold on some late night TV commercial, or B.) …actually, no. You just expect A. Thankfully, the Mi-T Grip Dash Mount rises above its name, and is the first to successfully address each of my dash mount needs.
Listen, robots, you’ve got three simple rules to follow. Three! Is that so hard? Apparently so, if Bad Bots is any evidence. Thankfully, we’ve got intense robot blasting action to remind them of just who built them, we’ve got the game on Steam for Mac and PC users to get the action started, and we’ve got it on sale for $7.50.
It’s been said (somewhere, maybe) that the only thing that can stop a good tower offense is a good tower defense. If you’d like to test that theory without annoying your neighbors by building your own towers and amassing your own army, a good way to go would be to check out Anomaly 2, the sequel to the award-winning Anomaly Warzone Earth.
